i'm happy with how they turned out and i enjoyed the technique of gluing and wrapping the embroidery cotton around the pieces. thanks, ro.
they started out from this
you may notice that the red hooded character ended up being a raggedy doll character instead...that's just what i felt drawn to do.
on another note, thanks to some torrential rain, our drought of ten years in south east queensland has been officially declared OVER!!! it didn't come without costs though. one poor man lost his life when gale-force winds picked up an awning from somewhere and sent it crashing through his office window yesterday. there was severe flooding in many suburbs and some areas were classified as disaster zones. luckily, we live in a suburb that was safe from the flooding though there was a lot of water on the roads and very strong winds with the heavy rain made for dangerous road conditions. yesterday was definitely a day for spending indoors. today, the rain eased though i'm not sure if there is still more to come.
